About Metro Pointe Orthodontics
We are a Specialty Orthodontic practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!
A standard of excellence in personalized orthodontic dental care enables us to provide the quality orthodontic services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and work with your general dentist and other dental specialists in using restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should an orthodontic dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care, education, and appropriate treatment rendering are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide not only active orthodontic treatment, but also preventative orthodontic care. That's why we focus on thorough exams - checking the overall health of your teeth and gums with your regular dentist, reviewing your concerns and expectations, and taking orthodontic records including x-rays, models and photos when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease and work with your regular dentist to maintain and improve your teeth. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we're also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the Canadian Dental Association (CDA), the College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As Specialty dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental and orthodontic lectures, meetings, and conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art orthodontic dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
